    Description

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Install zabbix-agent from Debian
      2. Try to install zabbix-sender from your repository
      3. fail...

      The Debian package is made of a single zabbix-agent package that contains zabbix-sender. I would recommend doing the same thing, but if that's not possible, one solution is to add:

      Breaks: zabbix-agent (<< ${binary:Version}~)
      Replaces: zabbix-agent (<< ${binary:Version}~)

      to the Package: zabbix-sender, so that upgrading works correctly. Maybe it'd also be nice to add:

      Depends: zabbix-agent (<< ${binary:Version})

      but I will leave this to your judgement.

      (FYI: I know what I'm talking about, I on the top-10 uploaders in Debian)

      Also, thanks a lot for taking into account my previous bug report about fixing the versionning from release names to numbers. This fixed upgrading for us.
